Looking for a way to give back and help out your community? Later this month, the Chicago Volunteer Expo will take over the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum where attendees will be able to meet and discuss volunteer opportunities with the representatives of nearly 100 different nonprofit organizations. From organizations that focus on art and architecture, to environmental protection, to helping Chicago’s homeless, the variety of organizations will offer many different ways for folks to get involved.

Those with a particular interest in architecture, preservation, and conservation will be able to meet with the teams behind organizations like the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, Friends of the Forest Preserves, Chicago Park District Nature Areas, Forest Preserves of Cook County, and Openlands, among many others.

The expo will take place at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum (2430 N. Cannon Drive) on Sunday, February 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
